Porter Airlines is launching seasonal service to Burlington, Vermont, this winter, expanding its US network and adding a new destination for passengers looking to enjoy a season on the ski hills. With twice-weekly roundtrip flights from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport to Burlington International Airport beginning on Dec. 15 until April 8, passengers can enjoy easy access to some of Vermont’s best skiing and a rich assortment of local attractions.”This is a great partnership that will boost tourism in Vermont and provide an economic boost to our ski areas,” said Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin.In a joint statement, Senators Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders, and Rep. Peter Welch said, “Porter Airlines, Ski Vermont, Governor Shumlin, the Burlington International Airport and Customs and Border Protection came together to introduce the people of Toronto to the best skiing and riding in the U.S.A. This announcement underscores the ‘international’ in Burlington International Airport, creating seasonal scheduled nonstop service between Toronto and Burlington. While it will offer a much-needed influx of visitors to the state this winter, especially needed following the devastating blow of Hurricane Irene, it will also give Vermonters an unprecedented opportunity to visit and do business in Toronto.” Senator Leahy, Senator Sanders and Congressman Welch wrote to Porter Airlines this summer inviting them to begin service between Toronto and Burlington. This fall, the lawmakers have worked with the airport and other stakeholders to help iron out details surrounding clearing international visitors at the airport. “Our new service to Vermont is a perfect complement to our current winter schedule already featuring prime destinations such as Mont Tremblant and Quebec City,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines. “Burlington offers access to an incredible array of spectacular ski hills, and a vibrant community to explore.”The Burlington schedule includes weekly roundtrips on Thursdays and Sundays, with the exception of long weekends which offer Thursday and Monday roundtrip options. One-way fares start as low as $99, plus applicable fees and taxes.Special Porter ski packages from Stowe Mountain Resort, Jay Peak, Smugglers Notch and Sugarbush will be offered at the Ski, Snowboard & Travel show in Toronto, October 13-16, and at www.skivermont.com(link is external) in the coming week.About Porter Airlines Porter Airlines is Canada’s third-largest scheduled carrier, based at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.

She will retire at the end of this 2018 season. She is the career leader in the number of games won for an WNBA player.Lindsay is a native of Minnesota having played high school ball in Hutchinson, Minnesota. She then led the University of Minnesota’s women’s program to national prominence. During her playing career at Minnesota, attendance grew 10-fold from about 1,000 a game to 10,000 a game.After a very successful pro career she has returned to her home state, and in the the first game they played this year her team filled the field house to standing room only. Women’s college basketball has grown under such greats as Sylvia Hatchel of North Carolina, Pat Summitt of Tennessee, Vivian Stringer of Rutgers, Tara Van Derveer of Stanford, and Muffet McGraw from Notre Dame.
